Does anyone have a checklist for position groups for each grade level? For example the 6th grade coaches would have a list for all WR's and they would be able to line up with correct body mechanics. They would be able to run the 5 basic routes. They would be able to explain how to catch the ball above and below the waist and demonstrate it.
I am looking at creating a checklist for 7th and 8th grade so when they get to high school they have the basic terminology and fundamentals down. We get OL as 9th graders that have no clue what a down block is and they have played tackle football for 4 years.
Unfortunately, I think this is far too scheme dependent to give you a one-size fits all answer. For instance, what a 6th grader needs to know (at any position) in a DW offense is very different than what a 6th grader would need to know in a Spread offense, or a SW offense, or WT, or Pistol, or Power-I, etc, etc. Sorry I can't be more help, but I don't think there is a reasonable answer to your question, unless you limit it to a specific scheme.
